Applications of Pharmaceutical Desiccants

Moisture is the biggest enemy of any sensitive product, like metal or electronic items. So, to ensure the products safety of the products, it is important to check the atmospheric conditions of the place where the product has to be stored. This is not only the best rather the cheapest way to know about the atmospheric humidity. Moisture is not the only time when the product has moisture danger. Even while transporting, any item can easily come in contact with atmospheric moisture, and many lose their originality. There are various products in the market which help to absorb moisture from the environment. But how may someone know which desiccant to use in different humidity situations? Check the atmospheric humidity with humidity indicator cards and then use the appropriate desiccant.
Now, the question arises what are the indicator cards made up of, which makes them so efficient that they can analyze the amount of humidity in the atmosphere. The cards have a layer of cobalt chloride solution mixed carefully to change their colour from blue to various shades of magenta, red to pink. These cards are not made to indicate the exact amount of moisture in the environment. Still, they can efficiently tell the range of maximum possibility of humidity present in the container. For example, if a card indicates 10%- 60% of moisture if the dots' colours are deep blue, then you can be sure that the humidity is below 10%. It is very important for many products that the humidity level stays below 40% because the basic corrosion or rusting activity will never happen in this range.
These humidity indicating cards are used for various purposes like storing your wedding dress heirloom, electronic items, computer products, old photographs, personal items and many more. Apart from this, it is also used to store optical instruments, bilk packaging and preserve sensitive components. It is also used in bulk to pack dry products like various semiconductors and electronic items. The advantage of using this humidity indicator card is that it is very easy and a fast moisture monitoring tool. If required, it can also be customized. There are two types of humidity indicating cards cobalt-free cards and cobalt cards. Both people mostly use cobalt cards because of their moisture indicating technique is more appropriate and accurate.
Whether pharmaceutical, electronic, or food, any product can be badly affected by moisture. When any of the products is preserved or stored, the chances of being affected by moisture increase. With the help of desiccant canisters, the life of the products can be increased as the canisters help prevent packaging moisture. Desiccant canisters are mostly used in the pharmaceutical industry to package bottles and tablets. It has a very high capacity and speed for adsorbing moisture, and just because of this feature, they are the best option to be used with any food items or medicine. Apart from the silica gel, various canisters use various materials, like activated carbon and molecular sieves. These desiccants can control moisture and help control rust, mold, and any other type of deterioration activities that occur due to moisture.
Among all, silica gel canisters are considered the best option to be used, especially in the case of the pharmaceutical industry. It increases the lifespan of the product and is also the reason to retain the freshness and effectiveness of the item by keeping the packaging environment dry. The best thing about the desiccant canisters is that they are nontoxic, and thus this makes them flexible even to use with the food items. Whenever you choose a company for buying a desiccant canister, it is necessary to check if the company follows FDA standards in manufacturing the product. If it has successfully undergone all the FDA standards, it can be used in close contact with any food and pharmaceutical item. There are unique shapes and sizes of desiccating canisters available on the market. It is available in sizes starting from 0.5 to 3 grams.
With the help of these canisters, products can be given a controlled and packed environment that requires moisture controlled and odour free environment. The packaging platform can be customized according to the requirement and needs of the customers. When silica gel or desiccant clay is used in canisters, it is used for absorbing moisture. In contrast, Molecular sieves and activated carbon are used to adsorb gaseous activities like odour control. These desiccants are small and cylindrical can containers stuffed with highly active desiccant agents. The special design of these canisters allows them to be inserted and used continuously with packed pharmaceutical products. There are several sizes and variants available on the market for these canisters from which you can choose according to your requirements.
A somewhat similar concept to the desiccant canister, which is also available in various products and sizes and is provided by Sorbead India. There are various benefits of using these desiccant canisters or capsules that is it has a very effective adsorption rate, which helps in providing a moisture and odour free environment to the product. Sorbead India provides canisters at very cheap prices with flawless quality.
What is the MVTR Testing?
MVTR is the acronym used for Moisture Vapor Transmission Rate. This is the rate used to measure the passage or permeance of water vapor through a substance. Moisture control remains a major topic when it comes to packaging in the pharmaceutical industry. The extent of damage moisture interference can cause is adverse and irreversible.
Every substance permeates water vapor. But if how much is the question, then it can be only depicted by the MVTR value. Pharmaceutical industries have to make sure that their blister packaging is well built to protect the medicines from moisture content. To test that they will verify if the MVTR value of their packaging meets the USP standards or not.
Desiccant tablets are used to measure the MVTR of these pharmaceutical packages.
What are desiccant tablets?
These are desiccants in the form of small tablets. Desiccant tablets are used in controlling moisture content from pharmaceutical tablets and capsules. The desiccants are best suitable for blister packaging that will prevent moisture from invading inside the tablet. Being available in tiny shapes and sizes, they fit in easily in these packages even during the manufacturing process. Desiccant tablets are also used in nutraceuticals, medical diagnostics, military, and electronics.
Advantage of desiccant tablets:
- High performance
- Requires no additional space
- Act as an individual adsorption device
Use of desiccant tablets for MVTR testing
Desiccant tablets being compact are extremely useful in understanding the permeance of these pharmaceutical packaging. These high-quality desiccant tablets are placed individually or as a whole over inside the blister packaging spaces. Later on, after a given period, these desiccant tablets are taken to test and verify the moisture vapor transmission rate that is allowed as per the given standard for the particular packaging. In this way, pharmaceutical packaging companies can make sure their packaging meet all the standard and keep the products safe from any kind of moisture interventions.
